From Sam Stein at HuffPo, Elizabeth Warren, Alan Grayson To Benefit From Latest PCCC Effort:
One of the most prominent progressive groups in the country is launching a major voter outreach effort on behalf of 20 congressional campaigns, calling it the “crown jewel” of its election functions.
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee hopes to place one million phone calls to targeted voters through the effort, named “Call Out The Vote.”
President Barack Obama, with whom the PCCC has often had a contentious relationship, won’t be a beneficiary. Instead, the group will direct its resources toward down-ballot races, in hopes of building a progressive base in the halls of Congress.
Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Massachusetts, is the marquee candidate, with organizers hoping to make hundreds of thousands of calls for her campaign. On the House side, the group is gunning to return former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) to Congress. Grayson will personally talk to volunteers making calls on his behalf.
